Package: thunar
Version: 1.6.11-1
Severity: critical
Justification: breaks the whole system

Dear Maintainer,
shredding a file in a mounted USB key causes `Thunar 1.6.11 (Xfce 4.12)` to
block permanently.
The window with the key won't close and Thunar must be killed manually; it can
be restarted (must wait 2 minutes on a Intel Core i5) but is very slow and you
can just eject the USB device. After ejecting the USB device the problem does
not disappear and gets even worse.
Logging out causes `lightdm 1.18.3` to restart... and it keeps restarting
forever, in a loop.
>From `lightdm` it becames impossible to reboot, shutdown etc. and it must be
done from a VT.
Activating the rescue mode (single user mode) from `systemctl` and going back
does not fix the problem.
Apparently the only way to fix the problem is to stop lightdm.service and
reboot the system.
